She Blogged By Night Rides Again

Good morning all, and welcome back to She Blogged By Night. Anything interesting happen while I was gone? The blog is back in some capacity, though I don’t know yet if much new content will be posted. Right now, my new reviews tend to be brief and more suited to Letterboxd than a blog, and…

  The Weight The Band with The Staple Singers The Last Waltz (1976)   A few months ago, my interest in a pop singer lead me to The Last Waltz (1976) and to where I am today, which is grief-stricken (obviously), but beyond that is the realization that I’m in the midst of some larger…
